The holiday edition in the popular Flat Stanley series is a favorite in my first grade classroom, for both an afternoon read aloud and book study with my high readers.
This reading response booklet includes 3 vocabulary words to preview, multiple choice and open ended comprehension questions AND an activity for each chapter. The activities include visualizing, making personal connections, compare/contrasting, questioning and evaluating.
Students will be reading for meaning, interacting with the text in a variety of ways. The responses are great discussion starters! A culminating crossword puzzle allows students to apply the story vocabulary in context. Answer key included for comprehension checks.
Classroom tested, first grader approved!
